┬┐Nada Differencio?

I'm sure we've all heard Sonia Sotomayor's comment:
"I would hope that a wise Latina woman, with the richness of her experiences, would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn't lived that life,"
I woke this morning and have been in the habit of getting dressed downstairs so I don't wake any one. Usually I turn on the tv and try to catch some news. This morning, the story was Justice Alito saying that he takes his experience with discrimination into account on discrimination cases. That may parallel part of what Sonia Sotomayor says, but she goes on to say something that he doesn't even hint at. At no time does he imply that anyone of any race would make a superior choice compared to anyone of any other race. Sonya does. I see a big big difference in his position and what she's saying.

Everyone has been discriminated against. Some more than others. We all have that in common and it's an easy hook for the liberals to try to use to unite us, but it is not the issue here.
